VVMF events and COVID-19

(Posted 3/01/2021 – 9:00 am EST)

During this challenging time for our nation, nothing is more important to VVMF than the health and well-being of our Vietnam veterans and their families. We want to keep our visitors updated on openings/closings and events as the situation evolves.

While the National Park Service has not closed the national mall or The Wall, the D.C. region is still in phase 2 of its COVID recovery plan and no volunteers are on duty at The Wall.

Our commemoration of National Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29th will be virtual this year. Please join us at 1 p.m. ET on March 29th at www.honorvietnamveterans.org or on our Facebook page at:  www.facebook.com/vietnamveteransmemorialfund.

We are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to kick off our 2021 tour of The Wall That Heals in April. The 2021 schedule can be seen here: https://www.vvmf.org/The-Wall-That-Heals/2021-Tour-Schedule/

We look forward to honoring our 2020 In Memory honorees when we are able to safely host the families and friends of our honorees in Washington, D.C. We are still optimistic that we can host Memorial Day, In Memory 2021 and Veterans Day at The Wall in person this year but will make final decisions at a later time.

Like all of you, we hope this national health crisis ends soon but we must take the necessary precautions to keep our visitors safe at this time. We look forward to welcoming you all back in large numbers soon. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time.
